Yangshuo, China.

Hey guys! So one of our biggest China dreams, in fact it's at the very top of our list, is to visit Yangshuo!

We have been contemplating going in August for a week.
We are not sure when we will have the opportunity again.
Plane tickets are so expensive to get there but the train is very cheap. The only catch is it takes 3 days by train to get there!

The more we discuss it the more we think we will go in August! This is one of the best times to go and one of the only times we will have enough time to take the train there, spend some days exploring and take the train back.
It's super cheap to get there, stay there, and play there! So, why not?

We will be researching all the little details in the next month, along with finding a good place for Chara to stay while we are gone. Too bad she can't go with us!

I am posting this because I know some of you love doing research and exploring with us!

Any suggestions on what we should do/see while we are there?
Or any suggestions on cities we should stop off in along the way?

Right now we really want to bicycle through Yangshuo and take a day trip to the Dragon's Backbone rice terraces.

Also, we have heard that you can hot air balloon over the mountains! How fun would that be?!

Our train route would be,
